We are a 501c(3) Non-profit Organization whose mission is to (1) revitalize the Waikalua Loko fishpond, and (2) provide educational and stewardship opportunities for students, parents, educators, community, business and civic organizations that reflect and integrate core Hawaiian values. We have set different fee structures based on the visitor’s expectations. 

Kalama program (Docent lead; DOE approved): $7.00 This program is designed on the “Aloha `Aina curriculum, consisting of station activities as placed-based learning activities in the context of an ancient Hawaiian Fishpond. $7.00 per person

Kukui program (Guided Tour and Service Project):  Overview and history of the pond followed by a short tour. Participants will also do a service project.  $5.00 per person for groups up to 49. $200 for groups 50 and over.

Hanalima program (service only): $3.00 per participant for groups up to 49.  For groups of 50 and more, please add the cost of an additional Lua (Chemi-Toilet) $155

We understand there may be some financial hardship and welcome a suggested donation amount that would help to cover the costs associated with maintaining the pond and operational fees as well furthering the mission of PAF.
